The outgoing 2013 was among the best years for Bulgaria’s tourism sector.

For the first time, profits exceeded EUR 3 B and the number of tourists climbed over 7 million, reports Investor.bg. This is a 5% growth compared to the previous year.

As expected, the summer season was the most successful, with a 5.8% increase in the number of tourists. The highest share came from Romanians, over 1 million of whom visited the Black Sea. A notable increase among Russian and German tourists was evident.

Winter tourism also marked an exceptional 8.2% rise.

Tourism remains the only sector in Bulgaria to record progressive growth over the years of economic recession.
